Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge #26

Hello everyone!  Today I have something fun and different.  It's time for the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge #26 : 3D Objects - Gift Bags.  The guidelines for this challenge:  Stamp a gift bag!  Design must be new and must include Peachy Keen Stamps to win.

Here is my super fun gift bag:

Isn't it so cute?!?!  I just LOVE it!!!  Instead of using the traditional gift bag, I decided to use a plain old brown paper bag - you know the old fashioned "lunch bag"?     ;)

Let's start off with my super cute little girl.  She is from the brand new Peachy Keen Stamps ~ July 2012 : Kit of the Month.  Isn't she just adorable?  I stamped her with black ~ Ranger Archival Ink. The white paper is X-Press It ~ Blending Card paper and I colored her in with Copic ~ Sketch Markers.  I forgot to take a close up shot of her hair, but I think I did a pretty good job with my coloring.  She almost looks like she has natural highlights!!!

The patterned paper for her cute little dress, her hair ties and her shoes is from the Creative Imaginations ~ Gingham collection.  I paper pieced the little red layer of her dress and that paper is from Recollections.  I added some fun little red gems from my stash for the buttons on her dress and also her hair ties.  

The red and black mats are also from Recollections.  Up at the top, you can see that I added the funny sentiment "How old are you today?" which is from the My Creative Time ~ What's Growing On? stamp set.  I used a corner rounder to round off the corners of the sentiment tab for a little bit of a different look.  And finally, if you look closely, you can see that I stamped the background (which is the brown paper bag) with the fabulous "Peachy Keen Stamps ~ What Time Is It?" background stamp.

For the top of the bag, I folded down the bag about an inch. Then I added this fun Celebrate It ~ 360 ribbon.  I created the fun little design by using a hot glue gun in between the folds of the ribbon.  Above that, I added the perfect "Happy Birthday!" sentiment which is from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Darren and Laura stamp set.  Isn't that such a fun font?  I rounded off the corners of this tab to match the one below.  To finish it off, I added the fun polka dot tissue paper inside the bag.

Here is a closer view.  Hopefully you can see how I did the ribbon a little better.

Here's a side view so that you can see some of the dimension.  I was in a bit of a hurry, so I only decorated the front side of the bag.  Shhhhhh...don't tell anyone.    ;)

Here is a side view of the whole bag.  Don't you just love that "What Time Is It?" background stamp???  I'm not gonna say who this little gift bag is for, but can you tell that I'm teasing her a little bit about her age?  LOL  Hopefully she will think it's funny too.   ;)   One more quick thing to mention, I added some pop dots behind my little girl piece so that it pops off the bag with extra dimension.

Ok my creative friends, that's it for today.  If you have never participated in a challenge yet ~ give it a shot!  It will really help your creativity grow to another level.  So join in on the fun!  You will be glad you did.  Now head on over to the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge Blog to see all the other entries and to check out the projects by the fabulous PKS ~ Design Team.  I will see you all back here tomorrow.  Have a great day!

Cute bag! I love the color scheme, and the innocent look on the girl's face goes perfectly with the sentiment question! My little boy still thinks it's ok to ask grown-ups their age! After all, grown-ups ask him! Kids are so fun, and so is your bag!
